An operating Pd//D2O, Li+, Cl(-)//Pt cell, placed in an external electrostatic field, yielded unexpected results, viz. (i) Morphological changes in the form of discrete sites exhibiting molten-like features, i.e. features that require substantial energy expenditure. (ii) Presence of elements (Al, Mg, Ca, Si, Zn, ...) that could not be extracted from cell(More)
Recent years have witnessed renewed interest in the hydrogen economy, with emphasis on the metal/hydrogen system and its application to energy conversion efforts. Two industrially important aspects are emphasized, viz. the amount of hydrogen stored and the rate at which it can be transferred (absorbed/desorbed) because they are crucial factors in the design(More)
Earlier we reported that the pits generated in CR-39 detectors during Pd/D co-deposition experiments are consistent with those observed for pits that are of a nuclear origin. Spacer experiments and track modeling have been done to characterize the properties of the particles that generated the tracks in the CR-39 detectors. The effect of water on the(More)
In his criticisms of the review article on LENR by Krivit and Marwan, Shanahan has raised a number of issues in the areas of calorimetry, heat after death, elemental transmutation, energetic particle detection using CR-39, and the temporal correlation between heat and helium-4. These issues are addressed by the researchers who conducted the original work(More)
The effect of an external electric field on the physical appearance of the Pd/D electrode in an operating cell is discussed. It is shown that the individual globules of t h e " c a u l i f l o we r – l i k e " s t r u c t u r e u n d e r g o a s h a p e c h a n g e e x h i b i t i n g t wo d i s t i n c t features, viz those that require energy expenditure(More)
Three methods of tritium data analysis are considered—comparison between experimental and theoretical data, total mass balance and curve-fitting. The evidence for tritium production in electrochemical cells, with few exceptions (Will et al, 1992), is based on measurements of tritium increase in the electrolyte phase in excess of that predicted from the(More)
Raman spectroscopy and surface enhanced Raman spectroscopy (SERS) have many attributes that make them attractive for field detection of environmental contaminants, industrial process control, as well as materials detection/identification in agriculture, pharmaceuticals, law enforcement/first responders, geology, and archeology. However, portable, robust,(More)
The Pd/D co-deposition process was developed by Stan Szpak at the Naval Laboratory in San Diego as an alternative means of initiating LENR. Besides heat, other nuclear products that have been measured using Pd/D co-deposition include tritium and the emission of γ-and X-rays, neutrons, and energetic particles. This communication summarizes 19 years of LENR(More)
Earlier we reported, in this journal, that the pits generated in CR-39 detectors during Pd/D co-deposition experiments are consistent with those observed for pits that are of a nuclear origin. Recently, that interpretation has been challenged. In this communication, additional experimental data and further analysis of our earlier results are provided that(More)
